School Overview

St. Bonaventure University is a four-year private, not-for-profit, Franciscan Catholic University located in St. Bonaventure, New York that was founded in 1858.


The founder, Nicholas Devereux, had a vision to create a Christian school in the New York region. Chartered in 1875 by the state of New York, the college progressed into the twentieth century, adding a graduate program by the 1920s. Then, in 1950, the institution was granted university status by New York State.


For students requiring greater flexibility, St. Bonaventure University hosts the online Strategic Leadership and Integrated Marketing Communications graduate programs. Asynchronous online courses resemble those of on-campus counterparts, and classes in the Strategic Leadership program are scheduled in 8-week sessions. Students can also enroll part-time for additional convenience.
